Sugar-Free Soy Milk!

| 11 Comments

Here are two soy milks that I’ve been buying a lot lately. Both are vegan and totally free of sugar, weird ingredients and additives!

The first one is this Woongjin brand of “Incredibly Pure Soybeans” soy milk that I buy at Emart. I actually remember trying this soy milk several years ago and thinking it was disgusting because it’s quite thick and there was absolutely no sweetness to it at all, but I recently tried it again and my taste buds must’ve changed because now I think it’s quite good! It’s basically just soy beans blended up reaaal well. It’s only very sliiightly grainy at the bottom, but it’s barely noticeable, and it mixes really well in coffee or tea. I actually like the blandness and ofcourse I can always add my own sugar or agave syrup if I want.

One thing to note is that there are two versions of the plain soy milk- either in bottles or and tetra paks. Only the bottled version has no sugar, while the soy milk in the tetra paks (pictured above) has a little sugar. Probably for longer preservation? Woongjin also has a vegan black bean milk, which I wanna try soon too~

Another new favorite soy milk is this new sugar-free organic soy milk from Yonsei. It’s different from their regular organic soy milk in the blue cartons that you can find at Loving Huts and department stores. I haven’t seen this one at any stores (yet), but I got two crates from GMarket. Each crate has 16 cartons and all together the total was 17,400won, which comes out to about 545 won per 200ml carton!

There are only two ingredients: soy beans and salt. Amazing. I reckon this is perfect for health-conscious types, and diabetics too! I’ve been using this organic sugar-free soy milk in all my baking lately and it’s pretty great. Since it is sugar-free it does make the goodies a little less sweet, and the thickness of the soy milk slightly changes the texture of things like cookies, but it’s not a big problem at all.

  1. I have been buying sugar free soy in the states for awhile at Trader Joe's. But now I can find all the nut milks in sugar free form at Whole foods. Now I can hardly stand the taste of the stuff with sugar in it.

  2. Thank you, as always!

  3. Thank you so much for this post. It was so helpful! I have been buying the one in the yellow glass bottle labelled "Honey Soy Drink" (to the left of the one you've featured in your first photo). No time like the present to mix it up!

  4. thanks…
    It's frustrating that the Yongsei only comes in those tiny cartons – it's such a waste of packaging. We should petition them for a 1000ml version!

    There's one more unsweetened 두유 in Korea I've found – its the stuff Starbucks and The Loving Hut both use called Soy Cafe made by Maeil – but unavailable commercially – some Loving Huts will sell it on to you but it depends on the franchaise..

  5. I love your website! I am very confused though :-(! I can't read Korean and I can't tell if any of the soy milk is vegan. Can you tell me what korean brands are? THANKS!

  7. @cari burk Yea, I'm really diggin' the wholesomeness of the no-sugar stuff! Makes me feel so healthy… :)

  8. @Duncan Seriously! They should come out with the big cartons! I feel bad about all the waste too…

  9. @Mipa Wow! Thanks!

  10. I've been following your blog for awhile and I love it! I live in Bundang and recently started looking into vegan living after being diagnosed with gallstones and have slowly been making the change (much to my husband's chagrin!) to veganism. I stopped buying milk after reading The Veganist and was buying Soy Caffe from The Loving Hut but I wanted something a bit cheaper and that could be delivered. I had thought about emailing you to ask what you use but then I decided to just do a seach on gmarket first. It's funny that I found the exact same Yonsei soy milk as you and have been ordering that! It has been great in our smoothies, on cereal, in cooking and in baking! I do completely agree with Duncan though that it's a HUGE waste of packaging… I WISH they came in 1000mLs…

    Thanks so much for your blog… it has been sooo helpful as I attempt to transition myself and my family (I have two young daughters as well- it might be just vegetarianism for them for now) to veganism in Korea!
